Book Review | Guidebook to Murder by Lynn Cahoon

Date Published | April 1, 2014

Book Club Date | August 2021

Goodreads Rating | 5

Overall | This has been sittign on my bookshelf forever and I’m so glad that I finally read it because I just LOVED it!

Pros | Her Aunt was so amazingly efficient and profitable in running her business, it made me wish she was real and I could hire her to help me out with my business! It was a little immature how she was annoyed how much her Aunt was helping her after she was the one that begged her to come down and do so and honestly I wished the Aunt had more of a prominent part in the mystery. I liked the Aunt way more than the main character and wanted her to have more page time.

Cons | None

Warnings | None

POV | First Person POV Past Tense

Will I Be Continuing With The Series | Yes

Description | In the gentle coastal town of South Cove, California, all Jill Gardner wants is to keep her store—Coffee, Books, and More—open and running. So why is she caught up in the business of murder?

When Jill’s elderly friend, Miss Emily, calls in a fit of pique, she already knows the city council is trying to force Emily to sell her dilapidated old house. But Emily’s gumption goes for naught when she dies unexpectedly and leaves the house to Jill—along with all of her problems . . . and her enemies. Convinced her friend was murdered, Jill is finding the list of suspects longer than the list of repairs needed on the house. But Jill is determined to uncover the culprit—especially if it gets her closer to South Cove’s finest, Detective Greg King. Problem is, the killer knows she’s on the case—and is determined to close the book on Jill permanently . . .
